For an electric vehicle which is supposed to be cool and trendy, the Nissan LEAF sure does not care much about its looks. The hatchback has been around for years now without any major design upgrade, but that it about to change with the introspection of the 2018 Nissan LEAF which is due soon.
Nissan has not given a definite date for the debut of the 2018 Nissan LEAF, but they have divulged information about its advanced features. One such feature is the new ProPILOT system which makes the LEAF all but autonomous, at least in single-lane highway driving. But this is a first step toward full autonomy.

At the touch of a button the ProPILOT takes over the steering, brakes, and acceleration control of the vehicle, turning highway traffic jams a bit less annoying. You still have to sit there, but you won’t have to deal with stopping and going and steering. You could instead play with your phone, or read a book.
Gareth Dunsmore, Director of Electric Vehicles, Nissan Europe said: “The ultimate embodiment of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the new Nissan LEAF will be the most advanced, accessible EV on the market, today. Adding ground-breaking ProPILOT technology to the new Nissan LEAF will prove invaluable in unlocking many of the benefits of electric vehicles, creating less congested, cleaner cities for future generations.”
